Description

For a full week, I would like to guide you on an ice climbing adventure you will never forget. During this amazing trip, I would like to guide you on the best ice falls in Cogne, in the Alps of Italy.

There are a number of tremendous ice falls throughout Cogne that you can enjoy. In fact, there are over 150 ice falls to choose from. As a result of the variety, this trip is open to people of every skill level, from beginners and intermediate climbers to experts looking for that next challenge. However, regardless of your skill level, you should be in good physical condition.

Based on your skill level, fitness level, weather conditions and your personal preferences we will choose the best ice falls for you.

On the first day of the trip, we will have a short briefing. After that, for the next six days, we will climb different ice falls. And, at night, you will get to relax and rest in comfortable accommodations. Furthermore, the views you will get, from the climbing sites as well as your accommodations, of the Aosta Valley and the surrounding Alps are absolutely stunning!

Are you a fan of ice climbing? Would you like to climb in one of the most popular and thrilling areas in the Alps of Italy? If so, send me a request and join me on this week long ice climbing expedition in Cogne. I have no doubt you’ll have an amazing time.

If you don’t have a week, I also offer a full-day ice climbing trip in Piedmont, Italy, which you can enjoy here.

About the guide

My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.

In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.

We had the BEST day climbing with Marco in the Masua Cliffs. It was our first multi pitch so I was a little nervous but Marco made the whole experience seem so relaxed and fun. He was super professional and adjusted easily to suit our level, and sang me lots of songs when I got scared 😅. The climb itself was amazing. Because it was our first time we did an easier 5c route but it had lots of fun challenges - crack, slab, chimney. For me it was super technical and fun. The abseil down was one of the most spectacular feelings I have ever experienced. I will remember it forever. Grazie Marco for a great introduction to outdoor climbing. We can't wait to get more experienced and come back to stay longer and do some of the harder routes.

Marco is a gentleman and a very conscientious guide. He was prepared and always ahead of the game. We will try to go climbing with him again. Thanks Marco! The choice of route was an alternative due to closure on the Pan di Zucchero. It did provide a similar experience from what we can tell. So far I like the Explore-Share Service. It has been efficient and uncomplicated with reminders and an easy way to put us in contact with our guide.

Really good experience booking via Expore and Share. We've been in contact with several companies to arrange a climbing class but non of them were able to book a guide for us, Expore and Share managed. Put guide Marco was super friendly and experienced, we strongly recommend him.

Really enjoyed the Pan Di Zucchero, perfect for beginner climbing like myself. Marco was a great guide, lovely to chat too and I felt really safe during the climb.

Marco is a perfect climbing guide. He takes maximum care of his guest. I felt absolutely safe all the time. He knows the local area best and finds always shadowy routes which was very important at this time 34°C.

The multipitch we did at Pan di Zucchero with Marco was fantastic. A great spot to climb, with amazing views. Marco was also a great guide – friendly, experienced, and willing to pick us up from our accommodation which was very helpful.
